Speedrunning can be done on a lot of games... you just gotta take practice and learn how to be fast at a game. There are even achievements on a couple of games (Shantae: Risky's Revenge - Director's Cut for example on Steam) where it's required to be fast in order to get it.

I can beat Metroid Fusion 100% (and 99%) faster then some people can beat it 1%. (Check my signature for proof of that.) I am being challenged to Speedrun MaGLXII Any% (292 stars required to unlock the winning level.) Any game can be speedran if you know what you are doing.

When I was 13 I beat the first Super Mario Bros. In about 15 minutes, since I knew where all the warp zones were.

When I first got Super Mario 3d Land for my 3ds I beat it after 2 days- which I consider pretty good for a new-ish Mario game. I took me about 6 months to finish Super Mario Galaxy 2!

If I didnt mess around I could probably beat Fallout: New Vegas within a couple hours.. but whats the fun in skipping all of the exploring and messing around?

The only game I've speedran (if that's the term) is the original Super Mario Bros. I speedrun it whenever I'm bored.

I speedrun a lot of SMBX Episodes and several other official games such as Shantae, Super Mario Series and several other series that I know of and what I'm capeable of doing it.

After 102%ing DKC2, I replayed it and tried to go as fast as possible for another 102%... I got just under 5 hours.

On Speedruns.com, There are 2 times in the any% category that are slower than my 99% run when I just forgot to grab an unmissable item. ...or was you talking about MaGLXII?

Heavy Rain would like to have a word with you.

Personally, I can speedrun Super Mario World pretty easily.

The best Mario games to speed run would be any one which allows for skipping most worlds (I.E: SMB, SMBLL, SMB2, SMB3, SMW and NSMB games)

But any game can be speed ran.

I don't even skip the worlds in SMW, it's really not necessary. If you put it into retrospect, Super Mario World is actually a lot shorter than Super Mario Bros. 2 or 3 are, without using the world skips even.

Well if you are going for records then going through the star world would definitely be how you do it.

Not if you're doing a 100% run, son.

There are games that do require for you to be fast and get everything ingame as in be fast and get 100% at the same time for an achievement to get it. Shantae games do it (not the 1st one since that one is on the GBC).

I think most metroid games do it as well. At least Super Metroid, Metroid Zero Mission, and Metroid Fusion do so at least. The others are a combination of either time or 100%, not both. (I.E. the first two are based on time only, while the Prime series and Other M is based on completion alone)

Wouldn't you still need to use the star road to get 100%?
SMW would be longer than the previous SMB games if you were going for 100%.

Anyway, I speed run SMB3 under an hour without warp whistle.

Another game I can actually speed run (i think?):
  • VVVVVV

I have master the 3DS port of this game, and 100%* the whole game so many times, it felt possible to speed run this shit!

*When I said 100%, I meant the whole map filled up, all 17 transporters, all 5 crew members rescued, & all 20 twinkets! :ugeek:

Never tried it, but I think I could speedrun SMW if I put enough dedication. Besides that, I speedran Metroid Zero Mission and got a decent time on it I believe, though nothing fantastic, as I only managed to beat it under 2 hours and 40 minutes in one sitting.
